Super small desktop
Check it out... I have a Dell Latitude c810 with an Nvidia geforce 2 go and I have a question. I installed SuSE 8.1 and the terminal screen is the right size, but the X desktop is very small. I also have Mandrake 8.2 and Beos r5 and everything is great. Its just Suse. Can anyone help me, I really appreciate it. :)

Welcome to LQ.

If Mandy;s X is fine, then compare the two X config files. They should both be found under /etc/X11. If you're running the exact same X server version on both, you may even get away with copying the Mandy X config file over to your SuSE setup.

Your laptop screen probably defaults to 800x600 or 1024x***, and your SUSE desktop is probably set to a smaller size, try setting it to default, which will be the same as Mandrakes screen size, if that makes sense.

ie. Your Mandrake res is 1024x768, but your SUSE is set to 600x480, so the LCD only displays 1/2 the size.

Im still learning though, so dont quote me.

I dont know what this has to do with LFS though..

This thread was not even close to being about LFS so its been moved to the Newbie forum as you can see. Lets try to post questions and threads in the proper forums. Thanks.
